It's official! The very first trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens will be unleashed upon us this Black Friday.
But there’s a tiny catch ...
The new Star Wars trailer will indeed hit us the day after Thanksgiving Thursday (the day when the first trailer for Jurassic World will hit), but ONLY in nine select Regal Theater locations around the good ol’ U.S. of A., and ONLY from Nov. 28 to Nov. 30.

Now, apparently the good news is that the trailer will be playing before every single flick shown over the weekend. BUT, since it’s a super-duper exclusive trailer, it may prove very frustrating for fans who want to see it. Check out this tweet below:

No news yet on whether other theaters will also get to screen the first trailer for J.J. Abrams’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but keep your eyes, and your ears, peeled.
Do you guys think this is the right move on the part of Lucasfilm and Disney? Will you be making a holiday pilgrimage to catch the first glimpse of Episode VII?
J.J. Abrams has confirmed via Twitter the arrival of the teaser this weekend:
